St. Constantine Cathedral -- the main cathedral of our Church. Inside there are the relics of St. Evfimij and St. Evfrosinia.


This wooden house is a monastery dedicated to St. John of San-Francisco. Many times our Vladyka tried to receive some old monastery building (there are plenty of them in Suzdal), but each time he applies for some building, it is immediately given to MP. 



Church of St. Cosmas and St. Damianus. Hieromonk Nicolas (tonsured in the honor of St. Tzar Nicolas II), a priest of a really holy life served there. Before his death he went to his church and died before the altar. He died when he was only 42. Now another Father Nicolas serves there, and he tries to keep everything as it was during the life of Hieromonk Nicolas. 


This building was renovated, and now it includes: On the first floor the monastery of the Mother of God (Church, 24 sells and trapeznaya), on the second floor there are offices of the eparchy, the museum of White army  and classrooms. On the attic there is a large hall for gatherings (for 200 people). The Congress took place there.
